One of the most important things a tech company can do in the digital age is to remove the anonymity from your employees. We live in an age where you should almost certainly expect the person on the other end of your phone call to be outsourced, in another country, and generally is someone who is unhelpful and that you'll never be able to speak to again if you lose the call. At Armor, we want to crush that assumption by introducing the passionate and knowledgeable individuals that comprise o...
Two hackers walk into a website...
This isn't just the start of a joke, it's a very real occurence, and what happens next can depend on a number of factors.
Types of Hackers
First, you have your white-hat hackers. These are security minded professionals, whose only goal is to find flaws in your system and help you patch them. They are paid for their services, and do their work with the full permission of someone in the company, even if the penetration testing is done in a &q...

Not all Wi-Fi is created equal and figuring out which generation of Wi-Fi tech your devices use can be a bit confusing. Do you know the order of Wi-Fi standards? It's 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, 802.11ac. Well, things are about to get a whole lot easier (and better), as the Wi-Fi Alliance introduced the next version of Wi-Fi—802.11ax—simply as Wi-Fi 6.
This new approach is designed to help people easily understand which Wi-Fi technology is in their ...
How the Weather Is Predicted
When meteorologists predict the weather they use several different types of equipment. They use Doppler radar, satellite, radiosondes, ASOS II (automated surface-observing systems), supercomputers, and AWIPS (Advanced Weather Information Processing System).
Doppler radar detects all types of precipitation, the rotation, location, and velocity of thunderstorm clouds, airborne tornado debris, wind strength, and direction. Weather satellites monitor Earth from ...
It's that time of year again—a time filled with friends, family, and (unfortunately) cold and snowy weather. It's also a time of tradition, community, and, maybe most recognizably, gift giving. Finding the perfect gift for those special people in your life can be an absolute headache. Between not knowing what to get someone, or not knowing the right places to look, this can and usually does cause a lot of stress during this season—but that's where we come in! The Armor Te...
Online brand management is something that every company deals with at some point, whether it is big name companies like Papa John's or Amazon, or small companies like yours or mine. The importance of this brand management is sometimes overlooked—after all, the "people" on the internet are just usernames, or at least this is what some people believe. The fact of the matter is that those people are probably your customers and clients, and what they have to say can hugely impact...
